What does it mean to be a man? Look around. What's so desperately needed where we live, in our church, country and in our world, are men who embrace all that God created them to be. To get there we need to dig deep into the doctrine of manhood.

Notes & Transcripts
INTRO: (Me)
I’m excited about this series. Truth transforms! I believe that our culture is stuck. Families are stuck! We exist at BCC to move people into a more dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. Our God is a God of movement. He is active and working and desires for us to move with Him. I don’t believe that there could be a greater movement than if man carried out God’s plan and purpose for their lives.
ILL: My arm and moving… I will drift into thinking that being a man is about lifting and proving my manhood to other men. It’s easy to draw the wrong picture of what a man is and isn’t - IS, beard growing, plaid wearing, truck driving, grocery hunting sitting in a tree stand. ISN’T, clean shaving, khaki wearing, smart car driving, sushi eating dude sitting in a coffee shop. My concept of manhood easily drifts from a biblical views of manhood to a cultural view of manhood.
The truth is every single man is called to be who God called him to be.
MoMENtum will not happen unless I move with Jesus.
(We) But when we look around at the problems in the world today. We are not moving. We are stuck. We don’t have a definition of manhood.
There is nothing more dangerous than to drift away from God’s design and plan. It causes so much pain. You can trace the existence of governmental programs and even charities to the lack of men being men. Ladies, the pain that you feel, it can be traced to a man that did not move with Jesus. He did not understand his role as protector and provider. He consumed your esteem and conquered you emotionally and moved on. That is not a biblical man!
Without a definition of manhood males pursue boyish things to try to prove manhood. If we consume more we will be a man. More beer, money, ladies etc… A consumer causes pain and is the opposite of God’s plan. He is not a man. He is a boyish black hole that sucks the life out of everyone he comes in contact with.
There is nothing more dangerous than to drift away from God’s design and plan. It causes so much pain. You can trace the existence of governmental programs and even charities to the lack of men being men. Ladies, the pain that you feel, it can be traced to a man that did not bow to Jesus. He did not understand his role as protector and provider. He consumed your esteem and conquered you emotionally and moved on. That is not a biblical man!
We don’t have a good historical example. Biblically, not that long ago. Boys went to work with their dads. They learned tradition and a trade and then they transitioned from boyhood to manhood.
Historically, we have many problems to cause us to be stuck today. Slavery and the injustices of separating families. When boys are ripped out of the arms of their fathers and treated as communities it is going to cause future problems. In industrial revolution the American Dream was born. The lunch box and the lazy boy were invented and dad left kids with mom and went to work. Raising children became the “women’s work” and dad’s best times became work time not family time.
No right of passage. We do not have a transition from boyhood to manhood. We’ve filled it with ADOLESCENCE. This seems to be a no man’s land. It stretches boyhood on for longer and longer periods of time.
ILL: Masai Warriors - What are those huts? … they then kill a lion.
We have no right of passage. We have no markers of when a boy becomes a man! We can’t agree. Obama care says 26, Oskar Blues says 21, Army 18, DMV 16, Disney 10, Delta 2. We have a problem. We are stuck.
(God) To get unstuck and to move into biblical manhood we need to look at the one who created manhood. During this series we are going to dig into what the Bible teaches about manhood. That is a right response. But we also need to avoid wrong responses.
The culture response is to erase gender. It states that we are all the same and in an advanced society there is no room for gender. Society can’t even decide what bathroom to use and we are advancing as a society? WRONG Key Word: Passive
The churches response isn’t much better. Masculinity has been abused. The historical church has taken away the man card. We’ve painted churches pastel and made Jesus out to effeminate. Abuser think they are masculine. Man have taken selective passages out of context and used them to be domineering. Key Word: Abuse
During this series our goal isn’t to be politically correct but biblically correct. I would like to ask you to let the Bible speak and please don’t filter truth through passivity or abuse.
Transition: For men to get unstuck and experience moMENtum we need to move with Jesus. We can do this by understanding the MECHANICS OF MANHOOD, the MESS OF MANHOOD and how to MOVE WITH JESUS!
1 Corinthians 16:13–14 ESV
13 Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. 14 Let all that you do be done in love.
Nothing about this verses is passive or abusive. ACT LIKE A MEN is sandwiched betwen four imperatives. Those commands are the tracks on which biblical manhood rolls. These is our series verse and it represents good news for men.
We are going to make no apologizes for acting like men. The people around us need to see us living out manhood. What they are seeing in the media cast men as passive, cartoon dad v/s hero hamster. Or, men are abusive villains. Need someone to play a domineering villain role, choose a man.
Arg: I don’t have what it takes! Do I have what it takes? Ladies, we are insecure we try to prove ourselves. We are insecure boys trying to prove our manhood. The GOOD NEWS of the GOSPEL is that you don’t have to check your man card. When you realize that you DON’T have what it takes.
MoMENtum will not happen unless I move with Jesus.
When something is messed up we need to go back to the beginning -
Genesis 1:26–27 ESV
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Genesis 1:27 NLT
27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Ex: God created us in His likeness both male and female.
Genesis 1:26–27 ESV
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.
Let us - God is a triune God. Father, son and Holy Spirit. God’s love for Himself spills out onto creation and He creates and image bearer. But man alone was not enough.
Image = masculine
likeness = feminine
One sex alone is not enough to image God correctly.
When man and women come together, marriage, as one it is the closet thing we have to represent the nature and characteristics of God here on earth.
Genesis 2:5–7 NLT
5 neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil. 6 Instead, springs came up from the ground and watered all the land. 7 Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person.
Genesis 2:5 NLT
5 neither wild plants nor grains were growing on the earth. For the Lord God had not yet sent rain to water the earth, and there were no people to cultivate the soil.
Gen 2:5
Ex: God spoke… but you He formed. That is what you were created for!
Gen 2:5
formed… breathed into his nostril the breath of life - breathed into Him His spirit. Until this happened Adam was a shell of a male.
App: My prayer in the MoMENtum series is that you would take in the “breath of God.” That you would wake up from passivity and/or repent of abuse and look God in the face and be the man God has created and called you to be.
Genesis 2:8 ESV
8 And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed.
Genesis 2:8–9 NLT
8 Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made. 9 The Lord God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Ex: God put the man in the Garden because He was created in the wilderness. Women was created in the garden. It is the reason that a man has a wildness in Him.
Ex: God put the man in the Garden because He was created in the wilderness. Women was created in the garden. It is the reason that a man has a wildness in Him.
he put
Ill: Girl cousins and lighting bugs. Blue fireflys? You can’t drive the wildness out of a man. It must be tamed under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Gen 2:15-
1. Work To Enjoy
Genesis 2:15 ESV
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.
Ex: God created man to work! Work is not a result of sin.
Work = Rearranging the raw good that God had provided for human flourishing.
There are not a secular and holy jobs. Both are holy. That is why you need a calling and not a career. All jobs are holy jobs. When they are carried out by God’s children to provide for others.
(Ill - 23 yr old wild but no job)
2. Will To Obey
Gen 2:
Genesis 1:26 NLT
26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
Genesis 2:16–17 ESV
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
Genesis 2:15–17 ESV
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
Ex: God was not into rules He was into relationships. Our God is a YES God not a NO God. One no and thousands of yes’s. God is good, great and generous. He says that this one thing you need to avoid because it will kill you.
Gen 2:
commanded… You may… you shall not
3. Woman To Love
Genesis 2:18 NLT
18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”
Gen 2:
Arg: The gift of singleness? In the meantime you love your mom, your sister and especially your sisters here at BCC. BTW, girls, you want to see how a guy is going to treat you watch how he treats his mom. Single men, if you wouldn’t text it to your mama don’t text it to her. If you wouldn’t sit down in front of computer/tv and watch it with mom then don’t watch it alone.
If you can’t love, honor and respect females now putting on a tux and going through a ceremony will not help you. You play like you practice.
Men Need Encouragement
Ex: It is not good for man to be alone! Ladies, you are a helper but your not the Holy Spirit. The breath of life that God breathed into man. Don’t correct but please encourage him. “The only reason you are doing this is because Mark told you to.” You are going to get farther faster with encouragement. I’ve never heard a man say, “I wish my man would stop encouraging me.”
“Men are like puppies. Give them a treat and they will repeat.” - Joby Martin
Ill: Cheryl’s encouragement when I drive in the snow. I feel like a man. Show 2 pic of text messages of encouragement. 1. Great job 2. Praying for you (towels in the floor)
Men Need Order
Genesis 2:19–22 ESV
19 Now out of the ground the Lord God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. 20 The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man.
Genesis 2:19–24 NLT
19 So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. 20 He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep. While the man slept, the Lord God took out one of the man’s ribs and closed up the opening. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib, and he brought her to the man. 23 “At last!” the man exclaimed. “This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh! She will be called ‘woman,’ because she was taken from ‘man.’ ” 24 This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one.
Gen
Ex: Notice the order. Adam got everything in his life named and organized and THEN God brought him a woman/wife.
Ex: Notice the order. Adam got everything in his life named and organized and THEN God brought him a woman/wife.
brought them / God made woman
Gen 2:1924
Arg: Why won’t God give me a wife. Your life is out of order. You can’t get it together. If you were God would you give you one of your daughters?
Get your life in order before you expect God to entrust you with something very precious to Him.
Instead of looking for the ONE why don’t you become the ONE.
Genesis 2:21–24 ESV
21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
Men Need Companionship
Genesis 2:23–25 ESV
23 Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
Genesis 2:21–25 ESV
21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. 23 Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
Ex: Adam breaks into song! The animal were not companions. The women caused moMENtum. In Hebrew the word for woman and mine are the same word.
Ex: Adam breaks into song
Woman = Mine
The animals NOT mine the Woman is mine. It doesn’t mean ownership it means companionship. Huge difference!
God math: 1 man + 1 women = 1 Marriage For Life
When I’m passive or abusive I’m really affecting my self.
Again notice the order.
naked and were not ashamed
Married THEN Naked = no shame
Naked THEN Marriage = shame
God gives Adam the mechanics to move into manhood: Work to enjoy, Will to obey and a Woman to love. It is a perfect plan and goes incredible well for less then on sentence in your Bible.
Transition: For men to get unstuck and experience moMENtum we need to move with Jesus. We can do this by understanding the MECHANICS OF MANHOOD, the MESS OF MANHOOD and how to MOVE WITH JESUS!
Gen 3:1-
Genesis 3:1 ESV
1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”
1. Listening To The Liar
Genesis 3:1–5 NLT
1 The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” 2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. 3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’ ” 4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. 5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.”
Genesis 3:6-
Ex: Crafty plan of satan. He is a liar and a deceiver. The enemy wants you to doubt God. God didn’t actually say? God is holding back on you. He is not for you. He is not good, great or generous.
Did God really say = doubt
or even touch it = legalism
you will be like God = God is not for you
2. Lures Of The Liar
Genesis 3:6–7 ESV
6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loincloths.
Ex: The enemy lied to Eve and lured them into this mess we are in. Three lures -
Good for food = Lust of the flesh
Delight to the eyes = Lust of the eyes
Make one wise = Pride of life
These are the three lures Satan will alway throw at us.
who was with her = elbow to elbow
This is one of the most damning statements in then entire Bible. The reason we are in a mess. The reason you marriage is not moving into a more dynamic realm is not because you have done something wrong it is because you haven’t done anything at all. PASSIVITY!
Every has two fears that Satan can hook onto. The internal fear is - do I have what it takes? The external fear - what will she think? I’m not afraid of much. I’ve been through cancer twice! But I can go home and be terrified of a 5’2” girl.
eyes of both were open… fig leaves
Every man rejects God. We either do it in the REBELLION of the fruit or the RELIGION of the fig leaves. I’m going to disobey You or I don’t need your Son’s righteousness I’ll just cover my self up with something I’ve made to substitute. All men and women will move away from God or move for God. Neither cause moMENtum.
Genesis 3:8-
Genesis 3:8 ESV
8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
Gensis 3:8
3. Results Of Rebellion & Religion
A Messed Up Man
Genesis 3:8–13 ESV
8 And they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden. 9 But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” 10 And he said, “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked, and I hid myself.” 11 He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” 12 The man said, “The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.” 13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
Ex: Classic messed up man move. DUCK, COVER, BLAME. God, this isn’t my fault!
I hid myself
you were naked
she gave me fruit
You now have God’s creation corrupted. This is why we are stuck as a society. This is why there is no momentum. But it’s bigger than that. This is why on the Macro level we have hurricanes and on the Micro level we have cancer cells.
:
A Messed Up Man
Genesis 3:14–15 ESV
14 The Lord God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, cursed are you above all livestock and above all beasts of the field; on your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. 15 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
This is the first Gospel! From this moment on sin is like sugar in the gas tank of the mechanics of manhood. Sin corrupts our will to obey - the liar twist God’s Word.
These lies create a great tension:
License = God is withholding something from me. I’m going to eat! Move away from God.
Legalism = I’ll take care of my own sin and cover myself with a fig leave. Move for God.
LICENSE - LORD - LEGALISM
Gen
On the inside we realize that we can’t do what God designed because of the sin/sugar in our gas tank.
A Messed Up Woman
Genesis 3:16 ESV
16 To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be contrary to your husband, but he shall rule over you.”
Ex: This means that this woman that God gave Adam to love and what God meant as a perfect compliment to bear His image is now messed up beyond recognition. It is now a contradiction and competition.
Ladies you were created to help. But sometimes to your husband it feels like a hostile takeover.
desire = to take over
Ill: Helpmate v/s Corrector - Correcting details of a story. 6 yrs beach / 2 years lake.
You are not your husbands Holy Spirit. You are there to help him not correct him.
A Messed Up Life
Genesis 17 ESV
1 When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless, 2 that I may make my covenant between me and you, and may multiply you greatly.” 3 Then Abram fell on his face. And God said to him, 4 “Behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations. 5 No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. 6 I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings shall come from you. 7 And I will establish my covenant between me and you and your offspring after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you. 8 And I will give to you and to your offspring after you the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.” 9 And God said to Abraham, “As for you, you shall keep my covenant, you and your offspring after you throughout their generations. 10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised. Every male throughout your generations, whether born in your house or bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring, 13 both he who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money, shall surely be circumcised. So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.” 15 And God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. 16 I will bless her, and moreover, I will give you a son by her. I will bless her, and she shall become nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.” 17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed and said to himself, “Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?” 18 And Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before you!” 19 God said, “No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him. 20 As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and multiply him greatly. He shall father twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 But I will establish my covenant with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this time next year.” 22 When he had finished talking with him, God went up from Abraham. 23 Then Abraham took Ishmael his son and all those born in his house or bought with his money, every male among the men of Abraham’s house, and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskins that very day, as God had said to him. 24 Abraham was ninety-nine years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 25 And Ishmael his son was thirteen years old when he was circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin. 26 That very day Abraham and his son Ishmael were circumcised. 27 And all the men of his house, those born in the house and those bought with money from a foreigner, were circumcised with him.
Genesis 3:17 ESV
17 And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life;
Genesis 17
A Messed Up Life
Genesis 3:17–19 ESV
17 And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; 18 thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. 19 By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
Genesis 3:17
All three of the mechanics of manhood are now messed up. Work to enjoy, broke. Will to obey, destroyed. Women to love, impossible. Life is messed up. I’ve tried everything. So what to we do? Women I know your frustrated.
Transition: For men to get unstuck and experience moMENtum we need to move with Jesus. We can do this by understanding the MECHANICS OF MANHOOD, the MESS OF MANHOOD and how to MOVE WITH JESUS!
Conclusion:
Genesis
Gens
Genesis 3:20 ESV
20 The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living.
What do we do? Man up?!? Prove our manhood by our own merit? Work harder, obey rules more, get our wives more gifts?
Genesis 3:20–21 ESV
20 The man called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living. 21 And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.
God made
MoMENtum will not happen unless I move with Jesus.
This is a foreshadowing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Your sin will be covered. I’m going to do for you what you couldn’t do for yourselves. The blood of an animal will be shed and I will take the skin of that animal and cover you.
MoMENtum will not happen unless I move with Jesus.
Don’t move AWAY from Jesus = license
Don’t move FOR Jesus = legalism
Move WITH Jesus = lordship
The question is, do I have what it takes? NO No man has what it takes! Not one!!
The question is, do I have what it takes? NO No man has what it takes! Not one!!
When you get to that position you can then get up and move like a man. When you stand and face God after He has breathed His breath in you then and only then can you move like the man He created you to be. This is good new because with Jesus you are enough. You can do His Work, His Will and love the Wife He gave you.
Romans
Romans 5:17 ESV
17 For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
Jesus came to do what Adam did not do. Jesus , the second Adam, lived a perfect life. Our sins are covered over by the righteous life of Jesus Christ.
The ultimate sign of strength is not how much you can drink, or how many deer you can kill or women you can conquer. The ultimate sign of strength is moving with Jesus and allowing Him to breath His breath of life into you.
With Jesus nothing can come against you! Your next move can not only change you but it can change you children and your children’s, children.
Next Move: Men if you are willing to act like a man. If you would say I can’t do this. I can’t move with Jesus by myself. I need Him. Would you stand?
Ladies, would you stand with your man? Will you let him know that with Jesus he is enough. I’m asking you to be God’s echo has Satan is in one ear telling him he is not enough. Be God’s echo in the other ear letting him know he has what it takes!
You want momentum in Brevard? It doesn’t need more churches, more education it needs men to stop being passive and abusive and come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Brevard needs momentum. It doesn’t need more churches, more education it needs men to stop being passive and abusive and come under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
